Moist apple muffins topped with a crunchy apple crisp topping. Like, omg.
Practically all of America goes apple picking in September. So the chances that you, dear reader, are going apple picking this month, are high.
This means the amount of apples in your kitchen will need to be baked.
I myself am going apple picking Sunday. I seriously can’t wait. Like, my boyfriend better be prepared for 5 apple recipes on account of all the apples I have to use up.
Speaking of which, may I suggest a few throwback apple recipes:
This applesauce spice cake I made for my dad’s 50th birthday
This cinnamon apple coffee cake I made with whole wheat flour because my sister told me to
This cranberry bourbon apple crisp that incorporates booze into dessert
These upside down apple biscuits. Though the photography is bad, the recipe is guuuuud
Sidenote: my old posts are hilarious. Pretty much just me complaining about the weather. Dying.
So enjoy those apples, people! And happy muffin makin’
